Best Player in the NFL: AFC North

Recommended Posts

Our journey toward naming the best player in football begins with our Divisional Round, where we list the best players on each team. Remember you're identifying the best players in the NFL right now, so performance in the 2017 season should be a principal factor but not the only factor.



Here's how it works: For each team, nominate who you think are the six best players on their roster, assigning +6 points to the best player, +5 points to the second-best player, and so on. Assemble a top 6 for all four teams in the AFC North. Feel free to discuss/debate the rankings of others; that's part of the fun of this process.



At the risk of influencing the vote, here are my picks:



:Steelers:


+6 Antonio Brown


+5 Ben Roethlisberger


+4 Le'Veon Bell


+3 David DeCastro


+2 Cam Heyward


+1 Chris Boswell



:Ravens:


+6 Justin Tucker (Don't @ me.)


+5 Marshal Yanda


+4 Terrell Suggs


+3 Eric Weddle


+2 Tony Jefferson


+1 Alex Collins



:Bengals:


+6 Geno Atkins


+5 A.J. Green


+4 William Jackson


+3 Carlos Dunlap


+2 Vontaze Burfict


+1 Joe Mixon



:Browns: This will not be easy...


+6 Joe Thomas


+5 Josh Gordon


+4 Myles Garrett


+3 Joel Bitonio


+2 Jason McCourty


+1 Kevin Zeitler



Edit: Added Marshal Yanda and Joe Thomas.

This proves Justin Tucker is at least equal to AB. :smug:

 

If we are talking purely the skill of the player, that's not an outrageous statement to make. Tucker is the best kicker in the league over the past three years, Brown is the best WR in the league over the past three years.

I blundered in my personal lists, completely forgetting Marshal Yanda and Joe Thomas, but they'll make the top 5 anyway, so the tourney will work itself out. :D
